A memorial service was held on Saturday (14 March) for Millard Fuller, the visionary who created the charity architecture organisation Habitat for Humanity International. Fuller, aged 74, passed away in January this year following a brief illness. The service was held at Atlanta’s historic Ebenezer Baptist Church where remarks from former American President Jimmy Carter were read.
“Millard Fuller’s drive and relentless commitment to affordable housing captured people’s imagination and changed lives around the world,” said J. Ronald Terwilliger, chair of Habitat for Humanity’s International Board of Directors. “His inspiration lives on in Habitat’s work and through its employees, volunteers, partner families and supporters. We extend our sincere condolences to the Fuller family and are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers.”
